  1. Justin Peck is choreographing the Spielberg version. Sharks and Jets invade Harlem as Spielberg remakes ‘West Side Story’
  2. Amar will play Bernardo in the upcoming Broadway revival of West Side Story, scheduled to begin previews in December 2019. I think this means he won't be in NYCB's winter and spring seasons? The new Ivo van Hove production will also replace Jerome Robbins's choreography with that of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. 'West Side Story' Broadway Revival Cast Unveiled
  3. Curious that no one has posted about Prodigal Son on Wednesday night with Joaquin de Luz and Maria Kowroski. It was so amazing. I didn't think that the partnering would work due to the difference in their height but Joaquin seemed so young, vulnerable, and powerless against Maria's femme fatale siren. I'll definitely be there on Sunday for joaquin's farewell.
  4. I plan to see Swan Lake. FWIW the Wagner Society of New York has a promo code on their Facebook page.
  5. There's certainly a self-destructive element to Finlay's behavior, especially his dissemination of the photos/videos to a wide group of recipients and the loan of his laptop to Waterbury. It's almost as if he wanted to get caught.

Mejia did not have a large repertory, but what he had he began losing. Finally one evening when Mejia was not given a role that he felt was his due—Symphony in C, third movement—Farrell issued an ultimatum: if Mejia didn’t dance in Symphony in C that night, they would both quit. To her utter astonishment, Balanchine took her up on it. Not only was Mejia not
  9. Macaulay addresses the Waterbury case in his review of Jewels. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/19/arts/dance/review-city-ballet-in-turmoil-shows-the-value-of-whats-at-stake.html
  10. Yes, I was wondering if "former SAB students" implies that they were SAB students at the time their photos were distributed via email (e.g. paragraph 83).
  11. Surprisingly, there are a lot of seats still available for tonight's opening performance. I wonder if the vacant seats are the result of the recent publicity.
  12. Yes, in France, Greece, South America, Australia, and Asia as well. Anecdotally, many of my friends who are not ballet fans have heard of and expressed shock over the negative publicity,
